Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bath

This spectacular beach front home in SummerCamp Beach is truly a vacation home like no other. Perfect for large or extended families, this Gulf Front home has 3 master suites all with a private luxury baths. Two bunkrooms provide 8 more beds offering plenty of sleeping arrangements for children of all ages. A gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry will delight those who truly want a first class experience. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the ocean setting, this home puts you at the edge of the water with breath taking views for literally miles out to the Gulf of Mexico. A gentle breeze awaits you on the spacious screened porch that wraps the entire front of the house. Down below features a large gathering area where you can shower outdoors after swimming or beach combing. Two large family rooms allow for total living space flexibility with flat screen tvs in every bedroom. The unique architecture of the home provides massive windows throughout, offering amazing views of the entire beach area. With no neighbors to the left of right, you will feel like you have stepped into your private paradise. This home is truly one of a kind.

'Happy Ours' is located in SummerCamp beach. This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time.

There is a community pool within walking distance of the home. Kick back and enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf as you lounge under a cabana or swim in the pool.

If you are looking for adventure, walk down to the kayak shack and hop on one of the kayaks or canoes. Cruise the shallows of the gulf while getting up close and personal with the sea life. Watch out for jumping mullet!

Commune with nature as you walk along one of the many boardwalks in the community that wind through the undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods.

This is what old Florida feels like and you will sense that you have stepped back into a simpler time, where fishing, boating, shelling, swimming and reconnecting with family is possible. Located just 45 minutes south of the Tallahassee airport, getting here is quite convenient, but leaving will be very hard.

I'm not a fan of writing reviews, BUUUUUT....

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at VRBOs in the past and I've always been hesitant to use them again. While looking for a Spring Break trip with a 7-year old and a 3-year old, we found Happy Ours but alas, it was 4 hours more than we wanted to travel (8 total).

Boy, did we make the right decision. We got a rate of about $400/night and it was a total bargain to spend the night in luxury in an approximate $1.43 million dollar home. Everything was clean, the beach was perfect (the tide pulled back, opening up pools of water and sand), and I can't recommend everything enough. Erika (the property lady) responded to every question I had within the hour. I felt like a prince.

Two to three families could easily have enough space here. Like other reviews have mentioned, you are very isolated out here, which is great because I HATE PEOPLE. We found fish markets within a 30 minute drive and cooked every night, but I'd suggest loading up on necessities on your way here, as it's never fun to drive an hour to a Wal-Mart or a Piggly Wiggly that looks like it could be featured in a horror movie.

A+ all around. Even with a screaming 3-year old for most of the way, the extra 8 hours paid off. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and thank you Erika for helping us!

Beautiful Views AND Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with all the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, porches, parking, and common areas you could want. It's HUGE! Our group of 14 fit with ease and absolutely loved the beautiful views out all the windows. The house sits on the beach with the waters edge very close when the tide is in, so it feels like you are part of the ocean when you gaze out the windows. When the tide is out, you can walk out a great distance and explore the areas usually covered by water. We found hermit crabs in their shells, an occupied conch, scallops, starfish, and a host of other sea life. Enjoyed the free kayak use with the kayak shack a short beach walk. The waters are so calm, you can paddle around with ease. We even got to kayak with the dolphins! Sunrise is especially beautiful and worth getting up for. It can be enjoyed from the living room, the porch, or on the beach just a few steps away. You can also see the sun set and an incredibly starry sky later in the evening. Wonderful lot with beach and ocean to the front and pine trees around the sides and back with no neighbors crowding in. Very private, but doesn't feel isolated. The booking agent was very attentive and easy to reach when we needed. One note would be that there are a lot of steps to get from the ground level to the main floor and the main floor to the top floor for those with mobility issues. We definitely want to come again!

Great get - away

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful spot right on the water for a winter get away. The grandkids had so much fun playing in the shallow water. The house was wonderful too. Very clean, spacious and everything we needed. Great home that we hope to be able to come back to with more of the family!
